Rock on!

Though I had a surprisingly good time at Disneyland and I usually call Target "my happy place," for the second year in a row the Dan Zanes concert won the award for "my happiest place on Earth!"

If you are not familiar with Dan Zanes you need to meet him.

Wonderful bloggy friends, meet Dan Zanes.
Dan (if I may be so bold as to call you by your first name), please meet my bloggy friends.

We've "known" Dan for about 4 years. (Scott was probably aware of him long before since Dan used to play grown-up music with the Del Fuegos.) We've listened to his kid's music since Jack was a baby. (I remember dancing with Jack, holding him tight, breathing in his delicious baby scent, every morning in his room to Wonderwheel.) And every year for the boys' birthday, we make a compilation CD of songs that have had meaning for us over the year. There are always 3 or 4 of Dan's songs on it.

So last year, when Dan Zanes and his band came to town we jumped at the chance to see them. And this year, knowing how amazing they are live, we jumped even faster to see them again.

This pic was taken from the mosh pit. They allow kids (and parents sitting on the floor) to come up front. The kids start jumping to the music and it looks just like a mini mosh pit.

Somehow, Logan managed to fall asleep in the mini mosh pit! Only Logan!
It was a fun morning of music and dancing. Seeing the happy (and sometimes sleepy) looks on my kids faces made me smile.


And for the record, we are not getting a cow. I've learned my lesson to not mix fact and fiction in one post...sorry for the confusion.


  1. Isn't it nice when the kids concerts turn out to be fun!! :)

  2. I love to watch at my girls when they are sleeping:)


  3. Yes, we've heard of him, and very fun music!

    Your post about the cow was funny, keep being you and making us laugh, fact or fiction :)

  4. How fun! I've never taken my kids to a concert. I wonder how that would go??? I better leave Emma at home-- she'd be trying to get up on the stage.

  5. I love Dan's music too. We also love Greg and Steve & have seen them in concert. Big FUN for sure.

  6. I've heard of him and he looks fun too. And for the record, lol that you had to clarify the cow comment. LMAO

  7. I want so badly to see him in concert, but we haven't found a concert coming here yet. Now that you've reminded me, I'm going to check out the latest listings.


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
